43 Nevil Road - Copy43 NEVIL ROAD
Copy of our letter to the BCC Planning Department:

We consider that the current proposal is a marked improvement over the previous application 13/04582/F, which had 7 flats and excessive on-site parking and significant loss of the boundary wall enclosure.

Blue Lagoon - CopyThe owners of the Blue Lagoon, on the Gloucester Road, had put in an application for a replacement and extension of the shop front. The work to do this has now been completed, but was done without the application having been approved by the Council, who have now refused the application.

Update on this refusal (Sept 1st 2014):

The Council is in the process of serving an Enforcement Notice to secure removal of the canopy. The agent has already confirmed that they intend to appeal the Notice, and it is expected that this process will take around 6 months.

LAND TO REAR OF 45 & 47 RADNOR ROAD      14/00558/F
We consider that this application is a more acceptable solution than the previous refused application 13/02244.  Our comments are as follows:

79 BELMONT ROAD       14/00445/H

The Society is extremely concerned about the design of the new dormer which is designed in the style of a chalet bungalow and incompatible with the period, style and proportions of the existing house.

8 CHURCH ROAD    14/00518/H
We have two observations on this roof extension and rear dormer as follows:
-          the dormer is shown finished in white painted render.  This is an unsuitable material as it has the effect of making the dormer look as large as possible which affects the amenity of local residents.

124 BRYNLAND AVENUE    14/00565/H
We consider that the proposed rear extension would be overbearing and likely to affect the amenity of the neighbouring property by blocking out daylight.  This problem would be reduced if the overall height of the eaves of the extension on the boundary was reduced from 2.6m to say 2.2m, which would be only slightly higher than the existing separating boundary garden wall. 

Drawing of proposed Bishop Road school extensionNobody could say we didn't try! The Bishopston Society, very dissatisfied with the stark, modern design the council had approved for Bishop Road extension (see drawing) had offered a much more sympathetic, alternative design that reflected the building's late Victorian architecture.

18 GLOUCESTER ROAD -  BLUE LAGOON -  13/05098/F  Here is our letter sent to the Planning department: Note however that this was written without knowledge of the 3 large patio heaters, which were not included in the original application to the Council.

289A GLOUCESTER ROAD     13/05870/F

The Bishopston Society is extremely concerned about the white UPVC cladding material proposed for the external walls at roof level which will make this bulky roof extension a major eyesore within the neighbourhood.

443-445 GLOUCESTER ROAD     14/00016/F

The Bishopston Society is concerned by this proposal to develop a 4 bedroom student flat in the rear garden of these commercial premises.
